Sheriff’s Deputy Accused Of Sexual Misconduct With Female Minor In Explorer Program

This story has been updated.

An L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy is being investigated for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a female member of the department’s Deputy Explorer Program.

Sources within the department say the deputy was assigned to the sheriff’s station in Carson.

In a statement, the Sheriff’s Department says it has been made aware of an allegation raised pertaining to a sworn member of the Department in connection with a Deputy Explorer.

“While the alleged involved employee** was not
directly assigned to the oversight or management of the Explorer program,
any proven criminal or other acts of misconduct that violate public trust, and that
of our Explorer program, and which jeopardize the hard work and years of service
that have been put into building our revered Explorer program, will NOT be
tolerated.”

A current, countywide review of the Explorer Program led to the discovery.

This revelation comes during a time when the LAPD is dealing with its own controversy involving the alleged sexual relationship between an officer and a 15-year-old female cadet.

Robert Cain, 31, has been charged with six felony counts of sexual assault.

The 15-year-old is among seven other cadets who were arrested for allegedly stealing several patrol cars and police equipment.

Cain, a 10-year veteran of the department, is in jail in San Bernardino County where he is also facing 10 felony weapons charges.

According to prosecutors, Cain befriended the 15-year-old girl and sexually assaulted her three times at three different locations.

The LAPD says it is conducting a full review of its cadet program.
